Good morning from Fish Creek.
Hope all is well down south. We woke up this morning to thunder and Blake can not understand how a human can build a house with no bath tub. Where is a poor dog to go and hide.
The weather has been pretty good for the most part. Mosquitoes are every where. I'm not sure I have ever been in Door when there have been those little varmints, I guess we are normally up here in the fall.
Our bike ride was a success. A short 25K but with both of us having colds for a month and bad weather we only trained for . . . .1 block. Last night a couple saw us and ask if we were on the ride. "How far did you go" they asked. Only 25K, " we went the 100K, testing my new knee that was replaced a month ago" the guy said. "Then afterward we took some kayaks out to test them" WELL LA DEE DAA!
We did have one little altercation on the ride :-)
DJ and I are riding side by side on an empty road. I'm pretty experienced with biking havign gone on five 500 mile week long ride in my life, so we were not a problem.
Then we hear. ON YOUR LEFT, meaning faster bikers are approaching on our left.
ZOOOM a recumbent build for two flashes past us. The guy the says "Taking up the whole God Damn Road". We are both surprised and mutter sorry, then I realize we were NOT taking up the whole God Damn road. I yell ASS HOLE!!
Not sure I have ever yelled ass hole to another biker (a few cars but no bikers).
I took pictures but this laptop has no photoshop and I don't want to upload 6 meg photos.
Lots of Lithuanians up here manning tables in restaurants. I'll have a photo of Donatas at some point - a pretty cool guy from Lithuania. They hire people from that area of the world every year. Seems to be a thing to do. It's something I have noticed is a lot of Gelato stands and I have heard many Italians. This is something new that has started in the last few years.
Right now they are explaining about toast to some waitress from Slovakia.
My parents purchased property in Baileys Harbor 40 years ago but sold it so I have been coming up here almost all my life. I have seen many changes but it's still the same old Door, a little busier an more trinket shops. Also I have seen prices rise in restaurants.
SO - today - some hiking in the woods perhaps.
That's it. Restaurant is filling up - better pack it up.
Check out Jenny's blog - she is taking photos of every meal LOL.
